While you’re decking the halls this year, you probably will want to get a wreath for your door. You might even want to get several wreaths to put on different doors throughout your home. Wreaths also can be beautiful hanging on your walls.
You could just go to the store and pick up a regular old Christmas wreath made out of pine sprigs. But while the classic Christmas wreath does have traditional charm, maybe this year you want to go for something a little bit different.
Today, I have that “little bit different” for you! In this video tutorial, I will teach you how you can make a stunning Christmas “wreath” using an old picture frame and a couple other simple supplies.
My focus here on DIYnCrafts this Christmas is on easy holiday crafts. In that spirit, I have endeavored to come up with one of the simplest Christmas wreath projects I could. There are only a handful of supplies required. It shouldn’t take you more than a few minutes to create the entire project.
Below, you can view all the tools and materials you need along with written instructions to go with the project video. Let’s begin creating our Christmas wreaths now.
Who would’ve thought it is possible to create something so magical out of a plain old picture frame and some regular ball ornaments. And who would’ve dreamed that it is so easy?
What I really like about this project isn’t just how easy it is, but how versatile the final outcome is. With its minimalism and the eccentricity of the concept (using a picture frame in place of a wreath), to me it has a very “modern” flavor—especially if you use a frame that is square or rectangular.
But at the same time, there is a rustic Christmas vibe going on as well. That seems like it should be a contradiction in terms, but sometimes it isn’t. This is especially true if your frame is made out of a traditional material like wood, and you are using twine as opposed to a different kind of string.
Perhaps it has to do with the whole idea of taking something which was designed for one purpose and using it for another. It is easy to picture folks in rural locations during simpler times doing just that around the holiday season.
After you have finished making your Christmas wreath out of an old picture frame, it is time for more crafting! Plenty of simple holiday projects await you on our site, so explore all of our videos, and enjoy!
